Taco Rosa Restaurant Review: Taco Rosa has a reputation in Newport Beach as a place to find rather healthy, simple Mexican and California dishes in a kid-friendly atmosphere. Start in the cantina with a margarita or beer and order up the stuffed jalapeños, chicken taquitos or portobello quesadilla. Unusual taco combinations are refreshing with intriguing ingredients like charbroiled salmon, lobster, blackened calamari, and portobello mushrooms for the vegetarian in your group. Parilladas platters are a specialty and feature grilled rib-eye, jumbo shrimp, chicken breast and sweet corn tamalitos. For dessert, try the churros, flan and chocolate-covered strawberries. Sunday brunch is a buffet-style affair with made-to-order omelets, a chocolate fountain and Mickey Mouse pancakes.
